no they are not
and this is just retarded, they are having fun at a COMIC BOOK CONVENTION!!! Oh Noes!!
get off your high horse
we read comic books
we like star trek / star wars
(one of) your favorite book(s) is about a guy that fights other guys that turn into coins! Where do you get off being judgmental about anything?
They are ruining comic books!? Not the smelly LCSs? Not the fat guy who only wears sweat pants and t-shits that are too small for him and hangs out by the back issues that scares away new customers? Not the judgmental freaks that get uppity because some one is enjoying their hobby in a different manner then they are?
Do I get it? no.
Are they harming me, or making me enjoy comics less? no.
Do I wish I had as much disposable income as they seem to? yes
Do I wish that I could have as much fun at what I like to do as it seems they do? Yes
